Robert Mondavi Private Selection Chardonnay White Wine
Chardonnay is the most popular wine in the U.S., and with good reason. Our vines are planted in the cooler northern region of the Central Coast of California so the grapes grow slowly and have plenty of time to reach their full flavor potential.
Aromas: Lemon blossom, green apple, and peach
Flavors: Smoky oak and vanilla spice
Texture: Creamy, rich, lush, and lingering
Pair Central Coast Chardonnay with: Rich seafood, poultry, and pork dishes, fettuccine Alfredo, and brie.
Robert Mondavi Private Selection Merlot Red Wine
Monterey County in the Central Coast is just the kind of place Merlot grapes love to grow. Not too warm, not too cold, with an ocean breeze and wetter soil than most of the region. This temperate terroir makes our coastal Merlot ripe, round, and silky - just what a Merlot should be.
Aromas: Dark cherry, ripe plum, milk chocolate, and roasted coffee
Flavors: Cherry pie, plum jam, and mocha coffee with oak layered over the top
Texture: Big, full, and rich. Ripe tannin for a long, silky finish.
Pair Central Coast Merlot with: Barbecued chicken, spaghetti Bolognese, mushroom risotto, or a grilled burger.
Robert Mondavi Private Selection Cabernet Sauvignon Red Wine
It?s only about 40 miles from one end of our Central Coast vineyards to the other, but 20 degrees different. That means while all our grapes benefit from volcanic soil and consistent, cooling fog, our Cab gets the heat it needs to develop the perfect blend of rich fruit and bright acid.
Aromas: Red cherry, red plum, and blackberry with a hint of spice
Flavors: Cherry and blueberry with smoky oak and vanilla
Texture: Smooth with a long finish
Pair Central Coast Cabernet Sauvignon with: Grilled steak, spare ribs, lasagna, or hard cheeses.
